I visited my brother in Raleigh back in July and he took me to a place that had Scotch eggs, which he encouraged me to try. If you have never had one of these before, you should go find out which of your local ale houses has such delights. North Carolina is a fried food lover’s Mecca.
A Scotch egg is a hard-boiled egg cloaked in a layer of sausage-based breading and deep-fried to brown, crisp perfection. It was served with brown mustard and tasted delicious. Anything served with mustard tastes better, the way I figure. It tasted like a heart attack waiting to happen, savory and slightly spicy, with a richness of flavor and soaked in hot oil.
Go get one now. You will never forgive yourself if you don’t.
